I need to check but I believe that we started Word of the Month Poetry Challenge in October 2009.
During the five years since, we’ve been entertained by the work of dozens of poets, some highly professional, some just starting up the ladder. All poems have been inspired by a single word.
Many of our contributors have been published since we started. I take no credit for that. I simply rejoice when good things happen to poets who have graced us with their work.
Soon I’ll start digging through the files for names of those who have not come around lately. I want to invite them to revisit W.O.M. and warm up for our anniversary month of October.
If you can help locate some of these “lost” poets, please do. I have high hopes of seeing a record number of poems posted between now and October, culminating with the anniversary month.
Onward and upward, friends!
